The floating art project will berth at Bideford essential maintenance checks over the weekend.

The floating Nowhere Island art project will be entering the Torridge Estuary tonight (Fri) and is likely to berth at Bideford Quay.

The island will be pulled into the estuary by a tug and is expected to arrive at the quay around 11.30pm for essential maintenance checks over the weekend.

It is expected the island will be available for public viewing at some point early next week.

The island has been sheltering off the coast of Lundy Island today due to strong winds and stormy seas, after visiting Newquay yesterday.

The project is due at Ilfracombe on September 1.
